WRKO's Finneran Loses Bid To Regain Law License
January 12, 2010 at 7:40 AM (PT)
ENTERCOM Talk WRKO-A/BOSTON morning host TOM FINNERAN has failed to get a court to reinstate his license to practice law, with the MASSACHUSETTS Supreme Judicial Court on MONDAY upholding a Board of Bar Overseers decision disbarring him.
FINNERAN, the former Speaker of the MASSACHUSETTS House, who pleaded guilty in 2007 to obstructing justice in a redistricting case, had contended that he was not acting as an attorney when he lied under oath and therefore should be allowed to resume his legal practice, but the court rejected his appeal.
FINNERAN can reapply for the bar in 2015.
